How much education do you have?

Since we have a few other "class" demographic threads. I think we did one of these years ago, but I'm guessing our demographics have changed a little since then.

I suspect we'll be higher than avg on this as well.

From the census folk (http://factfinder.census.gov/servlet..._2005_EST_G00_)

No schooling completed 0.9%
Nursery to 4th grade 0.9%
5th and 6th grade 1.9%
7th and 8th grade 2.7%
9th grade 2.1%
10th grade 2.5%
11th grade 2.6%
12th grade, no diploma 2.3%
High school graduate (includes equivalency)29.6%
Some college credit, less than 1 year 6.6%
Some college, 1 or more years, no degree 13.5%
Associate's degree 7.4%
Bachelor's degree 17.2%
Master's degree 6.9%
Professional degree 2.0%
Doctorate degree 1.1%

Hey! You don't have an option for us poor white trash vocational school grads.

Until you get one, count me as "high school grad" only. I did take one semester at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, but it was hardly an academic triumph.

Bachelor's degree. Considering post-grad if it will help.

I went to college for 2 years when I realized it wasn't for me. I've always been better at learning things on my own. I would buy the books and get the curriculum on the first day then just not show up and do the work on my own time when I wasn't at some type of party. I have received a few certifications since though.

B.A. I can't say I've actually used any of the three majors I graduated with, however.

I could have a two year degree if I applied to graduate, but I'm still in school going for the bachelor, so what's the point? I voted some college.

I have a 4 year degree but I was also smart enough to make it last more than that.
